Opening Keynote:  CJ McClanahan
Last year’s dynamic presentation from CJ McClanahan was a huge hit. He’s back again with a fresh keynote address designed to inspire and motivate. He’ll share the ten success habits every entrepreneur needs to have in place to excel and will help you recognize patterns of behavior that lead to achievement and offer straightforward concepts you can implement by the end of the day.
CJ McClanahan is the founder and president of reachmore, a leadership training and management consulting firm. He is also an accomplished author and radio host.  His coaching, speaking and training is built upon the simple belief that intellectually reaching your goals is easy, but few actually make the tough changes necessary to transform their lives. His unique approach helps listeners achieve real change.

Morning Plenary:  Bradford McKee
Bradford McKee  will share trends and opportunities he sees from his unique position as Editor in Chief of  Landscape Architecture Magazine, a post he's held since 2010.  Before he joined LAM, McKee worked for 10 years as a freelance writer and editor. His work has appeared in such publications as I.D., Architect, Slate, Metropolitan Home, Interiors, AARP Bulletin, The Architect’s Newspaper, Harper’s Bazaar, Cookie, Men’s Journal, Regardie’s, Washington Monthly, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post.
